These Lemon Macadamia cookies are a personal favourite – they are so quick to make and they taste divine. They’re also gluten, dairy and grain-free. However, a warning is appropriate… you will not be able to stop at one (at least I can’t!).
Well, firstly, almonds are a rich source of protein, essential fats, and fibre. They also contain antioxidants and mood elevating amino acids. The macadamia nut oil is a very stable, primarily monounsaturated fat with an impressive fatty acid and mineral profile. It adds a delicious, buttery flavour to the mix too. Lemon zest is a concentrated source of vitamins, minerals, antimicrobial and antioxidant compounds. Use the zest of a pesticide-free or organic lemon so you are not ingesting the chemicals and wax often applied to the peel.
